Where was it seen and what direction was it heading?? I can tell you is a 744, you probebly knew that anyway. Maybe a charter airline.

I think it could be BA but the contrail blocks a good view of the tail and logo so I'm not sure.

It's not BA, there is usually some red on the tail cone even though it's a small picture you can tell there is no red there.

Quoting PA101 (Reply 14):
Well, just look at it in "large". You can clearly read the "British Airways" letters on the side - and the color on the tail is red not gold...

Which one are you looking at? If it is the pic in Shamrock's post that was posted for comparison only, not the same pic. I certainly can't see "British Airways" on the original

No aint it! The navy in the Landor Livery extends almost up ot the windows.
The Blue on the Pic above only goes up as far as the wings. Also the fuselage looks too pale, the Landor had a grey shaded fuselage

British for sure-look at the front, behind cickpit, not the tail. BA ribbon swag, unmistakeably BA. Some 747s have blue underbelly, some have been minimized in color, however, smaller area of blue.

Wait a minute...Who said it was a 747? That is NOT a 747, look at the engine contrails, they are uneven like a A340. And there is no upper deck.

If it was taken over the Netherlands then would BA be at a lower altitude by then for landing in london. Maybe it's united if they travel from the far east or somewhere in europe?

It's definitely an A340, no doubt about it. The question is...whose!

Lufthansa is my guess:

It doesn't have a blue underbelly, a blue underbelly would extend further up towards the wingroot of the aircraft. The dark colour is the shadow. The tail is clearly a yellow circle on a dark blue tail. That gives you LH or Jet Airways. The latter is ruled out as the aircraft is completely white otherwise.

I definitely agree. You have too look really closely and squint, but I can make out a small "U" on the tail.

This is just rubbish, seeing as UA's logo is not even a "U", but more of a filled in "U". This argument can go on forever, no one will really know what it is and whose it is without more info. I still say it is an A340. I do not know why it took such an idiot like me to say that 35 replies into the thread.

Plus, that a/c is white, and if it was UA's new livery, than the tail would not even have anything that remotely looks anything like a "U".
